    Went camping with my girlfriend and tried to sneak in some landscape photography in the evenings.

    Did not go over well.

    Pro tip: don’t do something that prevents your girlfriend from getting her s’mores and campfire for a night while you’re camping. She gets angry.

    I come from the film era. Every exposure is done deliberately for a reason.

    Our last big vacation I took the kitchen sink! Actually didn't take everything, but I took a lot. But, we had the room (truck and travel trailer). I took 7 weeks off work and we went out west. Wife had just left a job and she scheduled her new start date for after the vacation.

    I think we got in 5 or 6 national parks and a bunch of monuments. I took 2 digital systems (nikon and canon), 35mm film camera, bronica SQ medium format system. 35mm panoramic camera (lab ruined the film, by cutting normal). I did not take my 4x5 large format. But I sure in hell was trying to figure out how too. Even with digital was well over 100 rolls of film used. Shots were deliberate, but even with film not afraid to do 3 frame brackets.

    It was a blast. And amazing how short 7 weeks can feel.

    Whether it's vacation or just photo outing, I tend to go minimalist. The K1000 is usually my go-to camera for a lot of things, and definitely for traveling. If it requires a plane ride and I want to bring a medium format with me, I'll go lightweight - usually the Lubitel or the Holga. If it's a road trip, I'm more likely to take the Mamiya 645.

    If I care about the shot, it's on film. If it's just a "I was here" or "look, a cute kitty!" or "done with this roll and don't feel like reloading because we're on our way back to the hotel", then I just use the phone.

    Brought dslr to Jamaica and only used it on the shuttle to and from the resort. Got some good shots with the phone otherwise though. I plan to bring it to Vermont in a few weeks. Should be quiet and slow and we'll likely go to some scenic vistas so should get some use of it.

    I’ve been very bad and not taking many photos at all.
    Mostly photos of my food.

    On vacation, I take my Pentax Q, with four lenses covering everything from 400 mm equivalent to a fisheye.
    It goes in a bag the size of a lunchbox.
